Summary: I bought this about a year and a half ago to use on my 7D and I love it! It is a little pricey and a bit heavy, BUT a great lens. Works fine indoors and out. I'm able to stand at one end of the basketball court and get good shots on both ends.

Summary: Outstanding product. One of Canon's best lenses. It is shade heavy but once you get used to its weight, it serves you well through the entire focal length range from near wide 28mm to long telephoto 300mm.
Summary: The Canon EF 28-300mm f/3.5-5.6L IS USM AF Lens is the finest piece of glass I have ever used. I have it mounted on my 5D MK III and shoot with ISO set at 1250 and have some of the best photographs I have ever seen or taken.
Excerpt: I bought this lens for a trip to the American southwest, where I'd be shooting the Grand Canyon, Monument Valley and a variety of other vista landscapes. I'm a perfectionist who really likes to use the proper lens for the application, and I was wondering if there really is a one-perfect-all 'rounder...
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
Summary: Very nice lens for those times you aren't sure what you'll run into. It's not as fast as the rest of my glass, but it's a fine lens anyway. Quick, silent autofocus, easily adjustable friction control for the slide zoom.
Conclusion: I've got a number of lenses for my 5D Mark III - some from a 15 year old 30-D including a 28-200mm zoom. The old lens works on the Mark III just fine but really doesn't seem to provide the artistic effect that I wanted. So, I took the plunge and bought the EF 28-300mm IS USM lens.
Excerpt: The first day I used this lens for several hundred photos and every photo was usable. Since 2007 this lens has gone up in price and may increase in the near future. If you want versatility from 28 to 300 on a full frame or 400 plus on a crop this is the lens to invest in.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
